Package Description

With Elizabeth Guinle-Salter MAT&I, CMI, NAATI and Sarah L. Schneider, MS, CCC-SLP, ASHA Fellow

Continuing education approval: CCHI and IMIA

The interpreter’s voice is their instrument for connecting with clients and their livelihood within their profession. The increased demand for interpreters to work both remotely and/or in person has posed many challenges when trying to optimize the interpreting experience. Interpreters have few tools to care for their voice and prevent voice problems. Vocal health skills are necessary to perform interpreting work effectively. This session will focus on teaching: strategies on how the interpreter can protect their voice and prevent injury; ways to self-advocate; and share best care strategies to optimize voice during their interpreting work.
